Things Unspeakable: Theatre after 1945

Friday 7 October 2011, 4.00PM

What have theatre and performance brought to our understanding of the unspeakable?  To what degree has the realm of the unspeakable gained new currency within established and emerging trends in theatre?  What is the relation between enshrined understandings of the unspeakable and the resurgence of plays and performances about torture, war and genocide?

This three-day international, interdisciplinary conference gathers artistic practitioners and academic researchers engaged in reflection upon these questions and in the creation of new approaches to theatre, performance and human rights.
